In the Romanian village of Lunguletu, 1000 farmers on their tractors sit on 100.000 tons of cabbage in the local market, waiting for customers. At the end of the day, they either sell for nothing or destroy their crops. Intrigued of getting 1 ton of cabbage for 20 EUR, townie Șerban decides to spend one year in the village and work the land, to see why these people got into a deadlock and if there is any way out. The mayor and some villagers have ideas and possible solutions. But can they overcome the farmers mistrusting each other, their fear of a collective farm and the powerful urge to compete?
